    Striking out on a 4-2 count

    Something went terribly wrong in this game...

    DETROIT -- Yes, it even can happen in the Major Leagues.

    Angels second baseman Sean Rodriguez actually struck out in the fourth inning on Thursday at Comerica Park on a 4-2 pitch.

    Yep, I think someone drew a 3-ball walk earlier this season, and no one noticed until after the game.

    Dusty would've never let that happen.....

    There is nothing more embarrasing for a man in blue to ring a batter up on strike 2.
